Iggy Independence

We can be independent by...

  • Having everything we need to start the day
  • Checking our work for mistakes (reading sentences out loud helps)
  • Trying to solve problems by ourselves before asking for help
  • Collecting everything we need at the end of the day 

Well done to children who have won this weeks certificates for Positive People, TT Rockstars and Spelling shed

What are we getting up to in Autumn 2?

We are asking the question: Can you be an atlas detective?

The children will learn about different countries in the world, with a focus on the United Kingdom. We will discuss the features and landmarks of the four countries in the UK, and learn where some of the major cities are.

πŸƒ Autumn 1 πŸƒ

 

What are we getting up to in Autumn 1?

 

Science - We're asking "What types of rocks are there?"   We want to know about the different types of rocks and how soil is formed.  

 

History - A study of the Stone, Bronze and Iron ages.   What was the difference between the Stone, Bronze and Iron ages?  What was it like in Britain?  What tools did they use?  How did they live day to day?

 

R.E. - We begin a new R.E. enquiry where we will learn about Divali and what it means to belong.  We will be introduced to Hindu beliefs about this celebration.

 

Maths - We start this half term looking at Place Value, then addition and subtraction.

 

English - We start this half term by focusing upon writing super sentences. 

 

To help us to remember and make links in the things we are learning, we use knowledge organisers.

These are the ones we are using this half term.

Our current class read is:-

 

Books we have read so far:-

       

English

Currently, we are writing sentences using conjunctions such as For, And, Nor, But, Or, Yet or So to extend our sentences. We use the mnemonic FANBOYS to help us remember these.

Writing

We are learning to write sentences using FANBOYS to describe the key events in the video "Gus".  Follow the link to watch the video on You tube.  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CJmA_UyfZLQ

Learning Journey - History

In History, we enjoyed the 'magical middle' of our focus on the Stone, Bronze and Iron Ages by making our own Stone Age arrows.  We brought sticks in from home and then used the hacksaw to saw a notch to hold a flint arrow head.  We used string to hold this in place, then added feathers too.

Learning Journey - History

In History, we explored and learned about some of the tools that were used in the Stone Age.  We made our own paper Stone Age axes.

Maths

In Maths, we have been working hard to catch up on our learning lost during lockdown and on Friday over the last few weeks we have been learning about directions.  Today, we played a game helping Wally from "Where's Wally" to find lost objects by directing him using the maths vocabulary such as quarter turn half turn, full turn, left and right.

Science

In Science, we have been observing and testing the properties of different types of rocks.  We tested them by pouring water on them to see if they are permeable or impermeable  Also , we carried out scratch tests on them to see how strong they were.

In English, we have been sorting sentences by identifying which are written correctly and which need editing.
In Maths, we practise our times tables daily. We are focusing on recall of the 2, 5 and 10 times table at the moment. Try this page to practise at home too.

Outdoor Education

On Thursday afternoons we are enjoying Outdoor Education in the school grounds.  This week we discovered some fairy dust and a letter from the fairies which told us that they had lost their belongings in the school grounds.  We decided to help by finding as many as we could.
